Torn Ear by Geoffrey Malone

The wind carried the scent of blood far into the night, while the vixen still pawed at the broken little bodies on the pile of earth. But Torn Ear survives the game-keeper's attack. Slowly his mother introduces him to the fox's world - the skills of hunting and how to avoid danger. Then he is on his own. Until he meets Velvet, and they have cubs of their own. But again man intervenes, and his favourite cub is threatened. Torn Ear must rescue her, but will he escape the clutches of the game-keeper this time?
